    Some days it's good some it's not, but if you don't like the food subway and flip side other options as well. So it is always nice to have a backup like those two options.

    For food and dining there is a market that serves breakfast, lunch, and supper In the student union. There is also many other restaurants down the stairs in the student union. Instead of spending money all the time there is a meal plan which uses uses points.

    The food on campus gets better and better each year. They're always changing up menus. If you're not a fan of the campus food, there are lots of places across the street or near by for you to grab a quick bite.

    The food is good, but they can make sketchy food. I wish the dining plans were different.

    This pretty well sucks. The campus powers that be charge us $2,000 for a crappy meal plan and took away our meal exchanges that would have allowed us to eat anywhere other than the two cafeterias. This is especially highly inconvenient for those of us who have classes that straddle the lunch hour and don't have time to go to the cafeteria for food.

    I am in Sigma Phi Epsilon, if you ever have the opportunity to go greek I highly recommend it. It is just a great atmosphere, for me Sigma Phi Epsilon is what I would call a home away from home because of how nice everyone is.

    The best thing about this place is that diversity can find traditional organizations here on campus and can find multicultural organizations too. What makes UNK different than other universities is that we have UNITY.

    The Greek community here is one of a kind. The friends are real, the chapters can come together to be one family, and the connections and people you meet will get you far in life.

    I heard it is a lot of fun. They have a higher GPA than the rest of the school but they are always doing different social events. They really know how to balance social life and school.

    As part of a Latina Greek Organization (Lambda Theta Nu Sorority Inc.) I totally recommend joining one. I've met so many wonderful ladies and worked on so many community service projects. We also work together with the other Greeks on campus to make our community a better place, to raise our gpa's and be great role models. The whole stereotypes that exist about Greek life are not true. With my sorority we have to keep our grades up and one of our activities that we are required to do is study hours at the library so If am not in class people can find me at the library or doing any other community service event.
